View one of the best Hawaiian waterfalls.
Located on the Hamakua Coast, Akaka Falls is over 400 feet tall and has an easy paved hiking trail taking you through the luscious woods.

There is an entrance fee required per passenger, so be sure to pay for those online ahead of time. Cell service is very limited once you arrive. This stunning waterfall is located within Akaka Falls State Park if you want to explore even more hiking trails while you’re here. This is one of the most popular waterfalls on the big island.
